What do I get for a prize? A free ride in a CAF P-51?
It's a Vickers Wellington MK6 pressurized version. Powered by two Merlin 60 R6Sm engines. In service with the No. 109 Squadron.
So when do I get the ride?

I now see that the ride in the P-51 is out for me. The aircraft is a 4 engine not 2.

would be fun to have one in the game

"The MB-5, as depicted in this painting, may have made a tangible difference in the air war over Europe. But alas, only one MB-5 was built. The MB-5 had a top speed approaching 470 miles per hour. It was powered by a Rolls Royce Griffon 83 engine generating 2,305 horsepower."

"Not all its virtues rested in the excellence of its engineering, for in the air MB5 was unquestionably ahead of contemporary piston-engined fighters, with a top speed of 460 m.p.h. Early flight trials, in the capable hands of Bryan Greensted, quickly established it as an exceptionally good aircraft, and some older readers will remember the polished demonstration of MB5 by Squadron-leader Zurakowski as an outstanding event at the Farnborough Air Display of 1946."
